"Rain," said the msp,who presidgq

to all of us from our early yetitvs.
Scientists telt us that rain Is the mol
ture which makes the clouds before it
is condensed into rain drops by com

"There are certain othej interesting
facts convected with. rain. I hIAve

Rain can be confidently expected to

open-air prize fights, and inaugurafions

merous to mention qnd it comes fre

"In the days before c0ildren were
Geprived of the pleasure of risking
their lives with fireviorks in celebrk
tion of the signing of the Declaration
of Independence each Fourth of July,
rain was halled with delight on that
anniversary by certain nervouts men
and women. It exerted a dampening
influence on the dangers of the day,
tended to reduce the noise of the oc
casion and made it almost impossible
to set roofs on fire with skyrockets
and powder cracliers.
"But today alnost the only persogs
who welcome rain are the husbands
and fathers of the land, who seek
excuses for accompanying their wives
and children to places of 6o-called
amusement and who, 'by some strange
superstition, regard a holiday as a
period in which to rest. Rain is 9a
pecially unwelcome on days like the
Fourth of July to the people whose
profts depend on the assembling of
thousands of patriotie celebrators in
the open air.
"Aside from holidays, rain is deemed
a valuable stock in trade by farmers,
gardeners, the manufacturers of rub
bers, raincoats and umbrellas. House
wives usually object to it, because in
all the centuries of civilisation thre
male members of families have never
learned the real use of the mat at the
front door with 'Welcome' wiritten

presented with something from over

to the ills attendant upon rain, called
me a crass materialist and went out,
thinking of violets, I guess, because
he forgot to pay for his coffee."

Seem to Have Enjoyed.
Tristan da Ounha is the general
name for a group of three small vol
canic Islands belonging to Great"Brit-L
ain situated in the South Atlantic
about 2000 miles west of the Cape of
Good Hope and about 4,000 miles
nortneast of Oape Horn. Tristan, the
largest ond northernmost island, has
an area of 16 square miles, is circular
In forAP, about seven miles in diatne
ter, and has a volcanic cone (7,640
feet), usually capped with snow, in
the center. It soinetimes happens
that Tristai da Cunha remains six
months, ten months, a year without
receiving news from any part of the
world, says the Philadelphia Inquirer.
The islands were discovered in 1506
by the Portuguese AdgiiraI Tristan
(or more correctly Tristao) de Cunha,
after whom they are named, during a
voyage to India, but it was not until
the Nineteenth century that the
Islands were permanently inhabited.
One dWs an American named Lambert,
"late of Salem, MAass., mariner and cit
izen thereof," landed in Tristan and
decla.red himself sovetelga and sole
possessor of the group (which he re
naiped Islands of Refreshment.)
"I have made up my mind," he
wrote, "to prepare fpr myself and my
family a home where I shall be able
to live without the difficulties that
have constantly troubled me, and to
procure for us a property that will in

the Island had already counted 72 14

100 in 1908. According to the latest
news, Tristan population has it

Thereupon an Anglican pastor, Rev.
Mr. Barrow, decided to go there with
his wife and a servant. It took themi
six months from Southampton to reach
the island. They remained there three
years, and Mrs. Barrow has left an
excellent narrative of their visit.
In this way it was lesaxned that those
recluses, even if they did not consider
themselves very happy, seemed to fear
that they would be even less happy if
they deserted this island., In 1006
